We were wondering what Project Gamma was all about, and at SXSW, Marvel unveiled a digital initiative that brings audio to your comics.
As expected, Marvel has announced a new weekly comic book series that is part of the Marvel Comics Infinite Comics initiative launched last year. And as we guessed, Wolverine takes front and center.
215 Ink has announced that its catalog of titles is coming to the comiXology app.
Starting now, independent comic book and graphic novel creators can build a worldwide following and profit from their work. Through a portal called comiXology Submit, from comiXology, the revolutionary digital comics platform, independent creators simply need to upload their comic book and graphic novels for approval at no cost. ComiXology does the rest, from transforming the work with comiXology’s Guided View™ reading technology, to making it available on comiXology’s buy once, read anywhere digital comics platform, which includes an iTunes top 10-grossing iPad app, iPhone, Android, Kindle Fire and Windows 8 apps, and a web store and reader at www.comixology.com. Creators and comiXology equally split all profits, with creators maintaining full ownership of their work.
